Abstract: This paper is intended to outline a project that will take place in order to produce a working interface and communications system for a solar car and its support vehicles. The system will be required to gather data from the cars sensors whilst displaying it to the driver in real time and transmitting the data to additional vehicles. Additionally voice contact is required between the vehicles. Progress information that has been collected must be stored and the appropriate web site updated when conditions permit. The specialized requirements of the computer software and hardware for the Team Gwawr solar car will also be considered.
